3:32 am
the obama administration made one final push, including vice president bind who stopped by a health care enrollment center here in washington >> i just wanted to come by and say, you're doing the right thing. you're doing the right thing. >> reporter: administration officials said the traffic at healthcare.gov was three times the previous peak day. they said the site could handle the last-minute surge but in a flashback to the technical glitches of last fall, an error message. officials say this is due to scheduled maintenance. and another problem, users couldn't create new accounts. that was resolved in an hour. in many states, there were lines at signup centers. >> people were here before the doors opened, and our staff has been working nonstop. >> reporter: the white house says more than 6 million americans have signed up for health care coverage. >> there has been a remarkable story since the dark days of october and november. >> reporter: but it's not the whole story. officials can't say how many of those who signed up were previously uninsured or how many
3:33 am
actually completed the process and paid their premiums. and it's unclear how many are healthy or come into the system with preexisting conditions. an abc news/washington post poll found support for obamacare is at a new high, up nine points since the fall. the deadline was midnight. but for those people who were able to get in line yesterday, either by phone, in person or at healthcare.gov, they'll have a grace period to finish their enrollment. john and diana? >> karen, thank you. on capitol hill today, the new ceo of general motors, mary barra, faces new scrutiny. last night, she met with families of those 13 killed from crashes due to the faulty ignition that cut the car's power unexpectedly. it comes as gm adds 1.3 million cars to an existing recall of 2.6 million. regulators want to know why gm apparently ignored the problem for more than a decade. that international fleet of planes and ships that are out in the indian ocean again today still looking for flight 370.

3:37 am
warmest years ever. jim avila, abc news, washington. >> i wouldn't know where to start with this winter. holy mackerel. >> my goodness. everyone points to the weather. there are the other side of this story. there are scientists out there that believe we have nothing to do with anything that's happening in the climate and that this is just the way climate patterns happen and there is no global warming. so, you know, there is definitely another side to this. there is a petition out there which a lot of people have signed, basically saying there is nothing happening in our atmosphere. it's just hard to see it and not imagine something is going on. >> skeptics point out that this panel's own finding shows slow down in rising temperatures despite the rise in emissions. yeah, two sides to every story, but -- >> it's hard to not believe something's going on, right? >> maybe a combination of both. maybe natural things are in order and we're just making it worse. let's take a look at the
